There are various sports seasons throughout the year, but football season really gets my blood pumping the most! From the conversations that I have had with folks over the last couple of months - most of you feel the same way!

A big thanks to our 2017 FFF Cover Boys: A&M Consolidated safety Kolby Peel, Bryan safety Gus Hancock, College Station quarterback Marquez Perez and Franklin offensive lineman Casey Phillips.

Peel is committed to Oklahoma State. Perez and Hancock have yet to decide, while Phillips is Baylor bound. Hopefully, plenty more senior players will field scholarship offers after the ‘17 season.

Plenty of coaching changes have taken place since Bremond won its third straight Class 2A Division II State Championship in December. Lee Fedora is returning to A&M Consolidated, while Greg Morgan is taking over at Rudder. Anderson-Shiro will look to Brad Hodges. Somerville is replacing Jesse House with his son Darby. Hearne will be under the direction of Ricky Sargent, while Dwayne Ross is stepping up in Iola. St. Joseph will look to a former player to guide the Eagles. It makes me feel old to call Alex Castilleja ‘Head Coach.’ He was St. Joseph’s quarterback in 2010. BVCHEA is now being guided by Gerald Hancock.

As for our fall football roster here at KBTX Media, John Wilson, Cody Coil, and Jake Kobersky will be back on the sidelines again with live reports during our 6 and 10 p.m. Friday evening newscasts. That’s 56 years of broadcasting experience, making KBTX one of the most established Sports Departments in the state!

Our coverage will kick off Friday evenings at 6pm with live reports from Cody, John, and Jake from time to time, and then at 10:15 p.m. we’ll check back in with our sideline trio for highlights and let you know how other area teams are doing during Big Game Friday Night.

As your Official Aggie Sports Station, we’ll also talk Texas A&M football along with Sam Houston State, Prairie View A&M and Blinn previewing their upcoming Saturday contest.

While you’re supporting your team, follow the progress of other games in the area through @KBTXSports on Twitter, using #KBTXFFF.

Throughout the evening, KBTX will keep you updated on the air during the Late Show with Stephen Colbert and online at KBTX.com. Then at 11:35, Subway’s Friday Football Fever kicks off with nothing but high school football! We’ll continue to feature our “Hit of the Night!”, Band, Cheerleaders, and Drill Teams of the Week, all in an effort to make Subway’s Friday Football Fever a show that goes beyond the sidelines.

As always, thanks for making KBTX-TV’s Friday Football Fever, sponsored by Subway a part of your football season. We look forward to covering your team this fall! See ya at the game,

Darryl Bruffett
Sports Director KBTX Media
